Weekly News Update

October 13, 2017
So, after two less than inspiring England performances over the weekend that did little to build any hope for next summer in Russia, it is back to club football this Saturday. Although we must congratulate Harry Maguire on making his England debut, it’s such a shame it didn’t come a few months earlier when he would have been a worthy recipient of the accolade of the first current England International playing for Hull City AFC. Back to the Championship and City will be hoping to carry on where they left off although we are sure we will settle for just five this week! Norwich will provide a stern test and we will have everything crossed that our dismal away run will finally be ended. Here’s your update from the Trust this week..
‘Gate Gate’
The owners of City and the SMC further endeared themselves to the local community last week when their new security gate on the Argyle St walkway was closed prior to the opening of Hull Fair.   
This led to inevitable issues when people attempted to access the fair which ultimately was solved by the gate being opened by the emergency services. Since then there have been reports of a person being injured when attempting to climb the gate. Bizarrely, the SMC’s latest statement acknowledges that the stadium can be accessed from various other routes – which of course makes the gate entirely pointless from a security point of view.
HCST is in dialogue with Hull City Council about this unpleasant situation. As well as the trouble it has caused for local people and the authorities, the gate also complicates the idea of erecting a permanent memorial to the original Anlaby Road Ground, Hull Citys first home. An update on our A.R.T. project can be found here.
Centenary Plaques Photos
Linking in with the above, over the past couple of weeks we have brought you news about three Hull City legends being honoured with centenary plaques and how we would like a permanent home for them in the “Railway Triangle”.
Some photos from the launch event at the street life museum can be found here courtesy of TigerLink.
HCST YouTube Channel
Over the coming months we will be venturing into the digital world and producing some of our own videos so we can keep you even more updated on the work the Trust does.

Development Review
The under 23 side got back to winning ways on Monday afternoon at Crewe Alexandra. 
Jon Toral, Greg Olley and Greg Luer all found the net in the 1-3 victory.  Leonid Slutsky took the opportunity to give some of the first team squad, who were not called up for International duty, a run out with Marshall, Mazuch, Diomande, Toral and Bowen all in the starting line-up.
Their next fixture is at home (North Ferriby) on Monday when they take on Huddersfield Town at 19:00.  Admission is free to season card holders otherwise £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.  We hope that some of you take the opportunity to give the side your support.
The under 18 side is also at home this weekend taking on Sheffield Wednesday at Bishop Burton College at 11:00.  Last weekend they took on Barnsley away and came a away with a 2-2 draw.
